mtbserver throws a DirectoryNotFoundException when trying to access `~/Library/Developer/MonoTouch` if it doesn't already exist.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Delete `~/Library/Developer/MonoTouch` on the build host.
2. Open a Xamarin.iOS project in Visual Studio to pair to the build host.
3. Select "Tools -> Options -> Xamarin -> iOS Settings -> SDK Synchronization -> Check Now".

Re-create the missing directory on the build host:
## Version information
OS X 10.9.4
This is technically a regression: Xamarin.iOS 18.104.22.168 + XamarinVS 3.0.54 will _create_ the `~/Library/Developer/MonoTouch` folder if it doesn't exist.
**But** it looks like XamarinVS 3.1.228 and XamarinVS 3.3.47 don't actually _use_ this folder anymore during the SDK update process. The folder remains empty after checking for SDK updates, and after completing the SDK sync. So maybe the fix will be as simple as removing the code that tries to access `~/Library/Developer/MonoTouch`.
This was fixed by Daniel for XVS 3.5 with https://github.com/xamarin/XamarinVS/pull/681.
I have checked this issue and getting same behavior after following steps mention in bug description
mtbserver log : https://gist.github.com/AkhileshKumar01/a3fca3fb180b8e11dcea
Hence reopening this issue.

Mac : https://gist.github.com/Mohit-Kheterpal/2f0515821c5de959887f
Possibly because the fix was needed on the mtbs side which would mean the mac package used by XI 7.4.0 is out of date.
Did you install the latest build host (22.214.171.124 or later) as well? Because the fix is in the mac side.
Did you install the last Xamarin iOS Build Host package? The fix was made on Mac not on VS addin... please let me know
Well, the Mac package is indeed way out of date:
> $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:xamarin/XamarinVS.git
> $ cd XamarinVS && git checkout -b v3.5 origin/v3.5
> $ cd XamarinVS && git reset --hard 26dcb09c8d853ffc6b7e2bc48ffedce62e4f49cf
> $ echo XamarinVS Wrench lane: xamarinvs-mac-v3.5
26dcb09c is from 08-06-2014, 17 commits behind HEAD.
@Alo, @Jose: You must actually bump the version in the Xamarin.iOS build.
There is essentially no fix without actually including the fix into a Xamarin.iOS build.
@PJ doing that right now
*** Bug 22121 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The MT bump was merged in https://github.com/xamarin/monotouch/pull/45. Marking as RESOLVED for verification.
I have checked this issue, after following steps mention in bug description.
I have deleted monotouch folder from mac server ~/Library/Developer/MonoTouch
and then click on refresh icon in windows VS to connect to mac build host then it connects successfully and generates monotouch folder ~/Library/Developer/MonoTouch
And sdk sync successfully without any error.
Hence closing this issue.
